The First Boat Races on the Great
Inland Sea to Come Off this
The approaching regatta at Salt Lake is
attracting a gnat dec! of a'tention in
Montana, and there will no doubt be
several visitors from our Territory, as the
railroads have made very lew rates for the
event and the fare from Helena or Butte
to Sait Lake and return is only §25. The
races will take place on Thursday and
Friday of this week, the 30th and 31st
inst. The necessary funds for this event
are contributed in a liberal manner by the
citizens of Salt Lake and the railroads
entering there, but the immediate manage
ment is in tbe hands ot the Llks, who pro
|>ose that nothing shall be Jett undone to
secure an event entirely novel and unique
in the records of the Rocky Mountain
regie ns. A racing shell was never seen in
the gieat basin where lies the famed city ol
the Mormons, and the thought of aquatic
contests upon the bosom ot Salt Luke,
hitherto a stranger to other craft than
the frail canoes of the Indians or the heavy
row boats introduced by a pioneer civiliza
tion, is quite original and inspiring. TLat
the spectacle will Attract an enormous
crowd is n foregone conclusion. Excursion
trains will run to Salt Lake City from Ne
\ada, Wyoming. Moniana, Colorado and
various parts of Utah, and unless all signs
fail the city will be overwhelmed with
such a crowd as it never contained before.
The medals for the victoiious oarsmen are
heing fashioned in the City of the Saints
ont of native Utah gold, and will be souvi
nirs wotth preserving, not only on account
of their intrinsic value, hut by reason of
the pleasing associations that will cluster
around then:. They will represent the
most unique regatta known to tbe history
of aquatic sports in this country and one
that witl he the marvel of oarsmen all over
the United .S ates lor some time to come.
The oarsmen who are to contest these
races are all from the Mississippi Valley
Amateur Rowing Association, and were
sc lected with reference to securiog a smail
party of the best men to be bad anywfcere
Realizing that the enterprise conceived by
the people of Salt Lake, involving the
transport of five clubs 3000 miles, was
worthy of proper recognition, every effort
has been put forth to secure a party of
men with championship honors represent
ing various Western sections, and this
effort has met with great success. It would
he difficult, if not impossible, to secure
twenty men anywhere in the country, who
could out-pace ihe score of oarsmen
selected to row these great races at Salt
Lake. They are picked from such we'll
known clulis as the Farraguts, of Chicago,
the Delaware s, of the same city, tiie
Sylvans, of Moline, the Modocs, of Sr.
Louis and the Lurlmes. of St. Paul
The first day's racing will he held at
I/'ke Poiri and ihe second day's at Gar
field Bench—the two most noted bathug
resoits on the lake.
The Helena Base Ball Club Worsted
in a Contest with the Drum
Lummon Boys.
The Helena and Marysville base ball
clubs played a game ou the Helena dia
mond yesterday afternoon, that was wit
nessed by a large crowd of spectators. The
Helena clnb failed to materialize in toto
and the result was that only four of the
regular nine, Semper, McDonald, Tutt and
Mollit appealed on the grounds. The five
needed were made up lroru local players
and the game was started with Oker. of
Marysville, for umpire. At the end of the
fourth inmog, owiug to a kick from tbe
Helenas, a new umpire was substituted in
the pe rson of Frank Woodman w ho proved
about as obnoxious to the Marysvilles as
the- former one was to the Helena club
However, they finished the game without
bloodshed and the result stood Helena 5,
Marjsville 7. The victory put the Marys
ville club in high feather and it is uuder
s*ood they are willing to play the Helenas
to-day for any sum from $250 to $500. It
is probable another game will be arranged
in the near future between the two clubs
A Little Buggy.
Saturday n>ght Helena was visited by a
swarm of small black bugs that flew into
the city by the myriads and became lor
the time being not only a nuisance bat a
pest. About 9 o'clock they were first
not tied. They were attracted by the
bgh s in til! parts of the city, and wherever
there was an electric lamp they clustered
in thousands, falling upon the sidewalks
with a sound like the pattering ol rain
drops and strewing the pavements so thick
that it was impossible to take a step with
out crushing a half dozen of them. Where
windows were open and unprotected by
screens they flew in,attracted by the lights
indoors, and for a few moments made life
miserable lor such as were unfortunate
enough to come in contact with them. Tbe
little pests would light on facts and heads,
crawl into hair, ears and nostrils and make
themselves generally at home with a per
son's physiognomy. They stung, too, and
their tme left a sensation similar to the
pricking of a pin. Legions of them were
crushed by pedestrians and yesterday
morning sidewalks in front of electric
lights were polka-dotted with black spots
where the hugs had been stamped upon.
Nothing like the visitation was ever seen
in He'cna before. Several persons captured
a number of the "creepy thirgs with
wings," which they will present for
analysis and dissection to tbe first ento
mologist who happens this way.
Sudden Death.
Mr. William M. Briscoe, son of the well
known mining man J. O. Briscoe, died at
at bis home m this city ibis morning at
11 o'clock. His illness was brief—only of
a lew days'duration—and was. webelieve,
a virulent attack of cholera morbus. De
ceased was in the 18th year of his age and
w; s a promising young man. Hiä death
w ill be mourned by a large circle of friends.
The date of the funeral has not yet been
decided and due notice will be given of
the event.

Stock Men and Farmers to Petition
the Legislature for an Appro
priation for Annual
AmoDg the stock men and farmers who
attended the recent fair the remarks of the
Herai.d on the subject of a stock and
agricultural fair to be held independent of
the races meet with unanimous endorse
ment ; and it is the opinion of a large
majority of such citizens that steps
should he taken to bring about a fine an
nual exhibit of our farm products and live
stock at a date wheu all concerned in such
industries may profitably enter the lists
ami compete tor premiums. To this end a
number of stock men from Butte, Helena,
Deer Lodge, Bozeman. Madison county
and other places talked the matter over
last we-k and resolved to make an effort
in this direction. Their project is to peti
lion the legislature at the coming session
to appropriate about $10,000, or $5,000 per
year, to be offered in premiums for
livestock and farm products exhibited at
a fair to be held at a seasonable time,
that all interested may attend without
detriment to their business; that the ap
propriai ion bill name or authorize the Gov
'ilior to appoint, a board of trustees to ad
minister the expenditure of tbe moDtys
decide upon the date and place of the lair
and have general charge ot the exhibition
Were such a bill passed, no doubt every
town in the Territory would be a bidder
for tbe fair and would add to the amount
of premiums by handsome sums made up
at home to secure the exhibit. Nearly
all the stock tutu are in favor
ot the project and no doubt tbe miners,
farmers and business men will endorse it.
The Territory could alford to encourage it
by liberal appropriations aud build up a
system of annual expositions that will soon
compare favorably with that of the states.
Now that the opinion favoring such a
course has taken definite shape in this
way, it is to be hoped that all interested
will lend their efforts toward making it a
SU cess.
Madison County Fair.
A pamphlet issued by the MadisoD
County Agricultural, Mineral aBd Mechan
ical Association is out, announcing the
second annual meeting of the society at
Twin Bridges September 27th and 28th.
The officers of the association are N. Arm
strong, president; John Lott, treasurer,
and M. H. Lott, secretary. The directors
include some of the most prominent
farmers and stock growers in Madison
couti'y. As the association is in its in
fancy, no monied prizes will be offered this
year, but diplomas of merit will be award
ed to all successful exhibitors.
A Somnambulist.
One of the events of fair week hitherto
unrecorded was the leap of a somnambu
list fiom the second story of Julia Zeigler's
stable. On Wtdnesday evening, the hotels
being full, ahorse man and a surveyor from
Rony took a room iu the second story of
th - s stable, which ,s rented lor lodging.
About three o'clock the next morning,
while the stable boys were getting out an
early rig, they were frightened to see a
man drop to the sidewalk right in front of
the horse, which was badly seared by the
unexpected visitor. The man lit on his
feet, walked over to a stone pile across the
street and sat down. The no a - occasioned
by the alarm roused him ami he awoke
with a start soon after seating himsell on
ihe stoDe pile. He was the Pony surveyor
aud had leaped out ot the window to the
ground, a distance of 15 feet, while asleep
and knew nothing of it until he awoke
aud found himself sitting on the stone pile
His legs were a little strained by the big
jump, bat be was not seriously injured,
the muu was sober and in tact a strictly
temperate fellow though given to walk
mg in his sleep. The boys at the stable
are going to be governed by hisexperience,
which taey regard as a demonstration ot
one of the evils of going to bed sober.
Street Grading.
Our Republican city administration is
making a splendid record in pushing tfce
work of public improvements. Street
grading is going on in eveiy section of the
city, and the way the dirt flies was never
before equalled. In a city such us Helena,
where more than "seven hills" offer ob
struction to traffic, it would be hard to do
too much of this kind of work. Our
Council realize this, and also the benefit
the public reaps ont of improved street
grades. Since early spring contractors
have been cutting ajd filling in the prin
cipal streets aj well as in tbe
suburbs, and the good work will go on
until frost puts a stop to it VVheu the
end of the season comes Helena will be
vastly improved so far as her s reefs and
alleys are concerned, «nd she can thank a
live, progressive and enterprising Republi
can c»nncil for it. No manner oi expendi
ture of the city's revenues could be more
satisfietoiy to the taxpayers who always
advocate "the greatest good to the greatest
After Many Years.
Another of the early timers answers to
the roll call in the person of W. F. Bart
lett, who crossed, the plains over with Col
Fisk in 1862. In the fall of that year Mr.
Bartlett was one of several of the gold
seeking pioneers who built cabins oa the
Piiekly Pear at Montana City, eight miles
south of Helens, and took up placer
ground. Eater be hurried to Bannack,
lured by the reputed rich gold discovers
in that camp The following year he grav
itated to Alder and at Virginia City he
was some time in trade, employed by Ji lin
J. Roe. In the seventies Mr. Baitlett wen'
to Utah aud more latterly he has been
in the Black Dills, where he spent ten
years. He returns now to Helena
near h's first camping place, and he thinks
of rema ning here permanently.
Manual Training School.
H. F A. Kleinschmidt takes his de
parture in a lew days to resume the posi
tion of principal of the Haish School of
Manual Tiaiumg, University of Denver.
Oue great object of this school is to foster
a higher appreciation of the value and
dignity of intelligent labor and the worth
and respectabilny of laboring men. A boy
who sees nothing in manual labor but
mere brute force despises both the labor
and the laborer. With the acquisition of
skill in himself comes the ability and in
telligence to recognize skill in his fellows.
Mr. Kleinschmidt is a successful, practical
teacher and the manual echo >1 has greatly
prospered under his management.
Work of an Artist.
A medley picture executed in oil by A.
E. Coffers and exhibited at the Territorial
Fair carried off a first premium. It is a
canvass twelve by eighteen inches, show
ing the articles of a bachelor's table a pot
of tea, a bowl of cut sugar, cup and saucer,
a bottle of wine, paper ot tobacco and
pipe, and part of the first page of The
Daily Herald. It is a paiming of red
merit and shows great cleverness on the
part of the artist.

Drowned in Sun River.
Great Falls Tribune : Sunday morning
two young meu, named Frank Bair aud
John Emmons, started ou a hunting trip
They crossed the Mb souri and walked up
the Sun River a short distance, where they
found good bunting. Emmons sbot at a
flock of ducks, some of which either fell in
the water or landed on the other side. Em
mons declared his intention of going alter
them and disrobing plunged into t he water.
Whether he was seized with a cramp and
sank or wbe'her tbe treacherous quick
sands drew him under is not positively
known; but before he reached shore he
disappeared aod was seen no more. Em
mons was a young man of about 22 years
of age and was employed by Wm. Roberts
in his shop. All w ho know t! e unfortunate
man speak very highly of him. A party
started out this morning to make efforts to
recover 'lie body.
Destructive Prairie Fire.
[Benton River Press.]
We were tn'ormed this morning by Mr.
King, fortman of the Dark stables in this
city, who retained last evening from the
Upper Marias, that a prairie fire has been
raging in that section for three days and
sweeping everything before it. The fire
was supposed to have bien started Irom a
ramp fire on the road above Fort Conrad.
It has destroyed the range north of the
Marias river to the Sweet Grass hills, a
distance of forty five miles, and west Irom
the Marias to tbe Teton. Several parties
Irom the Benton and St Louis, and other
ranches were out with wagons and provi
sions, doing a'l in their power to extin
guish the flames, but from last accounts
they wt-re s ill under headway. Mr. King
says the ranges of James Wright on Den
d'Oreille coulee, and W. P. Turner on the
Marias, havee been utterly destroyed.
Fire at Livingston.
The station building of tbe Northern
Pacific at Livingston, including the pas
senger depot and telegraph office, were
destroyed by fire last Monday night. The
flames originated by the explosion of a
lamp in the telegraph office and sion en
veloped the frame building, which burned
like tinder. All baggage and express mat

^Why is it that we received the Weekly

Justifiable Homicide.
At an inquest held over the remains of
James Gordon, who was shot in Idaho last
we^k by John McCormick, the jury rend
ered the following verdict:
"The jnry at an inqnest held at Osborn
on tbe 2»>th day of August, 1888, upon the
body found that be came to his death from
a bullet wound, caused by a shot fired from
a gun in tbe bands of John McCormick,
aud that John McCormick fired tbe shot
in self-defense, and that it was justifiable
James Gordon was a native of Canada,
born in Wellington county about forty
miles west of Toronto. He came to Cœur
d'Alene abont two years ago, and has
worked at different periods for the last two
years for Wm. Oorborn. He was about 34
years old.
The N. P. and O. R. & N. Still Build
ing in the Coeur d' Alenes.
From a gentleman just in from the
Cœur d' Alene country we learn that the
railroad war there is still in progress and
that construction work is yet going on by
the two rival companies, the Northern Pa
cific, which already has a real to tbe
mines, and the Oregon Railway & Naviga
tion Company, which is seeking an en
trance to the ore r. g oosby building an
extension from Farmington. Though
building a road bed in the caiion near
Warduer, the latter company has not con
nected this work with its Farmington
branch, owing to an intervening s rip ol
land about thirty miles across lying
within the boundaries of the Cœur d'Alene
Indian reservation. A bill pa sed Con
gress this se-sion aQd became a law by
the neglect of the President to sign or veto
it in the stipulated time, granting the O.
K. <St N. company right of way through
this reservation, providing the consent of
the Indians could be obtained. Though
four of the chie s are willing to sign ov< r
the right ol way, the majority of them are
against it and it is doubtful if they can
be persuaded into granting their corsent.
A council of the Indians was held a few
days ago, but they would not agree
to cede the right of way and broke up,
leaving the matier in statu quo. It is un
derstood the railroad company will try to
have another council held in a short time
hoping lor better success. As it stands
now the O. R N., though at work near
the mines, are effectually barred from en
trance thereto by the attitude of the Indi
ans and unless this can be changed the
toad will be kept out.
Meanwhile the Northern Pacific is
straightening its track, widening the guage
and doing ali the carrying trade of the
mines. It has absorbed the
Cœur d'Alene Railway aDd Navigation Co ,
which is now turnmg over its propeity to
the parent road. The transfer will be com
plete in about ten davs and then the Cœur
d'Alene Railway & Navigation company
will be out of existence. Though the N.
P. have surveyed a road around the lake
through Fourth of July canon, it is pro
burned they will not build it unless forced
to by competition. The boat line is
cheaper to operate and will serve all pur
poses of transportation until a competing
line enters the field and makes an ali rail
route to the mine» a necessity. The
Northern Pacific holds the top band now
iu the Cœur d'Alene game, and will until
the O. R. A N secures its right of way
across the reservation.
Alderman Harrison on Sewerage.
To the Editor of the Herald:—
Mr. Harmon weakens his mission to
lecture the Council aud instruct the public
on sewerage by tbe confessed antagonism
between bis views aud his votes. He was
opposed to the employment of Mr. Miller
as superintendent of sewers; therefore he
voted for his employ ment. He was op
posed to tbe purchase of pipe by the
Mayor; therefore he voted for the resolu
tion authorizing him to make the pur
chase. It seems, tbm, that the alderman
has so just a sense of the value of his own
judgment that he vo'es against it; yet he
is aggrieved becaii-e ttie other aldermen do
the same.
The situation can be stated very briefly :
It was the expectation and demand of the
pnblic, twice expressed at the polls, that
the work of providing sewerage should be
pushed forward this year. Alter the suc
cessful sale of the bonds, the duty of 'lie
authorities to act at speedily as possible
was obvious, because the alternative was
that the city should pry interest on money
lying idle in the treasury. If we corre tly
apprehend Mr. Harrison, he would there
upon have the Council advertise for five
miles of computed sewer in a single con
tract. As to the saving of time,
it is cot clear that this would
avail anything, since before the bidde s
could submit their proposals they woul ;
find it necessary to correspond with iuauu
fa durera aud secure prices of pipe and also
learn the cost of Ireigbt. etc. But a for
midable objection to this course is that
only parties of large capital could become
bidders, aud a combination ie more than
conceivable that would greatly increase
the cost of the work. Without respect to
that possibility, if a contract for five miles
ol completed sewers were let to oue man,
he would almost certainly bring on his
own laborers t) perform the work, and
practically no part of the money would
inure to the advantage of Helen» or any
ot its citizens.
It was the policy of tbe Mayor, aud al
most unanimously the aldermen, to make
this impossible. For that purpose it was
decided to let tbe city buy the pipe as it
buys the machinery for its fire department
and a great many ether supplies, and then
to let the work of digging the trenches in
small contracts so that men of limited
means eould compete, thus securing ut the
same time the piompt and cheap execu
tion of the work and tbe employment of
Helena workingmen to perform it. Per
haps Mr. Harrison would be more candid
if he were to state that this is what he op
Mr. Harrison regards it as "singular" that
there should net have been a quorum on
Monday evening. Not very, if they knew
wbat the Alderman hud in store for them

IOWA railway case.
Judge Dai rail 's Oecision in Regard
to tbe Rights of the Contestants.
Iovva City, la., August 28. —Judge
Fairall to-day filed his opinion in the case
oftde Iowa railways agiinst the Iowa
railway commis-ioners. The test case was
that of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pa
cific railroad against the Commiss'oners to
restrain them from putting into effect the
schedule ot rates prepared by the Commis
sioners in pursuance of ihe recent law of
tbe Iowa Legislature as to the jurisdiction
of the court of the subject in the mat'er of
action. This was sustained on the gronnd
that while the Commissioners are author
ized to exercise a discretion in fixing rates,
yet when they fix such rates so low tlat
the earnings are too low to enable the
plaintiff to pay their fixed charges and op
erating expenses, then their acts contra
vene the spirit of the statute which re
quires rates to be reasonable and jnst, and
is in violation of the constitntional provi
sions which entitle the common carrier to
a reward lor his services. The court farther
holds that the title of authority of the
legislature is between the rates which
are compensatory and those which are not,
and when Dot, tbe conrt of eqnity has the
authority to enquire into the matter. The
Commissioners appealed to the Supreme
Rates to be Restored.
New York, August 24— The recent
action of the northwest and transconti
nental lines may avert the threatened war
in passenger rates btteen the Eastern trunk
lines. Commissioner Pierson has received
word that the lines mentioned have
promised to re-tore first-class rates and
end the immigrant war by catting off the
commissions to eastern agents, on con
dition that other lines of the western as
soc ation agree tc do likewise.
Judge Eddy Enlivens the A. O. U. W.
Banquet at Cheyenne With
Original Verse.
At the banquet given by the A. O. U.
W. last week at Cheyenne, Jndge Eddy, of
the Helena delegation, wss told just as be
entered the banquet hall that he would be
called upon to recite a poem. Accordingly,
while the other guests were enjoying the
spread, the judge took out his pencil and
paper and wrote the following pcena,which
he read to the company before they left
the table :
Good Brothers of the mystic tie
I greet you once again ;
Right glad to meet you here am I
In beautiful Cheyenne.
This magie city of ths plains,
The pride of all Wyoming.
That rears its homes where recently
The buffaloes were roaming.
How grandly rise these storied piles.
Their grace and strength uniting.
To prove how peunanent and good
The history you are witting.
And may they stand like monuments
In this fair land forever.
To prove to all the world the worth
Of organized endeavor.
We of the notthern mountain land,
A thousand miles have ridden.
To greet the g.and fraternal bind,
That to this feast is hidden.
In loyal love we greet you now.
And hail «-acli as a brother,
We're children by oue common tie,
Of one right royal mother.
Her name is gentle Charity,
Her kindness all discerning,
Her wisdom is the aggregat s
Of all her childrens' learning.
And we who from her Juno bre. sls
Have drawn life's purest nectar,
Here pledge our lives and all we have
To honor and protect her.
What higher joy can true hearts know
Than that they've slain some sorrow,
And caused the light of oope to glow
On some sad soul's to-morrow'.'
O. well, if at the last we reach
The heights of Hope's blight vision,
Where Charity receives her crown.
And Faith finds glad fruition.
But whi'e we crown our mother, and
With tender grace enrobe her,
I'm sure she never would demand
Long faces, sad and sober.
For that which brings us truest joy,
Our weary hearts beguiling,
Will bring the glad light to the face
That brightens into smiling.
Then let its all be boys again.
And at the feast be jolly,
And let old Momus have his way,
The merry god of folly.
I did not mean let all be bovs,
That coukin t be expected ;
God bless the ladies! we are glad
To let them be excepted.
But they, perhaps, may kindly smile
Enjoyment on our meeting.
And thus an added piquancy'
Extend to this glad greeting
We love the brothers fervently,
And then whenever aid is
Needed in a case of love,
We call upon the ladies.
God bless the ladies, one and all,
And that includes our mothers;
And we, of course, embrace as well
The tisters of our brothers.
It is our creed to never shrink
From doini any duty.
Nor would a brother ever think
Of slighting any Beauty.
Now let us join with Tiny Tim
in his sweet soul's conviction.
God bless us now—on every oue
Let fall His benediction.
When down the long dim aisles of time
Our feeble footsteps falter,
And Memory gathers up at last
Life's beet fruits for her a tar,
May this g ad hour come buck again
W ith all its gathered pleasures,
And breathe its incense o'er our souls.
As one of life's best treasures.
